Tackling Malaysia's Stray Animal Crisis: MAWA's Nationwide Program
We are all aware of the growing number of stray animals in our country. While there have been efforts to tackle this issue, these have so far proved insufficient. What can be done?
The Malaysian Animal Welfare Association (MAWA) has recently rolled out a nationwide program to address this growing problem, one that is long overdue. This initiative plans to educate and sensitize the public on the issue, while managing existing strays.
Stray animals present a unique challenge to communities across Malaysia, but MAWA is stepping up with a comprehensive program that provides education and improved management of our furry friends.
The Malaysian Animal Welfare Association (MAWA) is working hard to address this problem by launching their newest program, Trap, Neuter, Manage (TNM).
TNM is a nationwide stray management program created by MAWA that aims to humanely trap, neuter and manage strays. Through this program, it seeks to reduce the number of unwanted animals on the streets and to provide the necessary care for them over time. This remarkable collaborative effort between MAWA and its stakeholders aims to make Malaysia a better place for us all
“The cruelty of mankind to animals is one of the most significant and distressing characteristics of human societies”
― Jane Goodall, British primatologist and anthropologist
